this is a recent thing. when I start Firefox I get a message asking if I want to start sugr.swf. I cancel it out. What's up with this recent thing?

Me, too. I get the standard open or run popup window about once a minute whenever Firefox is running. It becomes the active window and interrupts my typing. I did a search of the registry on sugr.wsf and got nothing. This is a _major_ pain in the ass. I'm just about ready to switch to Chrome if I can't fix this,

I think you are not the only ones, https://www.bing.com/search?q=sugr.swf&pc=MOZI

WARNING ! ! ! !

A link I found in the above search said that sugr.swf is a virus. Run your anti-virus now using full scan.

I did, and ran Anto-Malware Bytes twice, but I still get it.

Will this work:

1. Use Mozbackup. I have a whole lot of tabs open, not to mention bookmarks, add-ons, etc. 2. Uninstall Firefox. There's something that's causing that sugr.swf thing. 3. Download and install Firefox. 4. Restore with Mozbackup.
